May 2009 - A busy month of competition

May has been a busy month for our academy players with a number competing in various tournaments and matchplays around the South East region.

Spencer Pells, Leigh Sargeant and Tim Bean all participated in The Clay Millennium Challenge at Sutton Tennis Centre. All three played some great matches over the three weekends but particular mention should go to Tim who beat a player four ratings above him to reach the men’s consolation final.


The end of the month saw our players represented at two Kent tournaments. Fourteen youngsters headed for the courts at Parklangley while six stayed nearer home at The East Kent Championships. The week saw some solid performances with Charlotte Hobbs, Rachel Davis and Rebecca Riezebos reaching the finals for their respective age groups. Our younger players also had a successful week winning over half of their matches so well done to Dushan Sreckovic and Oliver Sigurdsson. However the match of the week was played by Evie Robertson who fought back from being one set down to beating her higher rated opponent 1-6, 7-5, 10-5.
